"You've been hacked!!!": Britney Spears' post leaves fans baffled
Spears' post confused fans online, as everyone knows Britney’s dispute with Jamie.
The comments section of the post was flooded with different reactions from Britney’s followers, with a few even believing that the post may not have been shared by Spears herself. Here are a few comments from her followers:
The sisters have been at odds with each other for a long time, and their issues became the talk of the town after Britney’s lawyer Matthew S. Rosengart sent a letter to Jamie stating that her memoir, Things I Should Have Said, misrepresented facts about Spears.
Britney Spears has previously accused her family of assisting in her conservatorship.
What happened between Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn?
Problems between Britney Spears and Jamie Lynn started in 2018 when Lynn was chosen as a trustee of Britney's SJB Revocable Trust. Britney's fans started the #FreeBritney movement in 2019 following a voicemail where the singer claimed she was forced to visit a mental health institution. However, Jamie criticized the movement and tweeted that she loves her sister.
Lynn appealed to the court in 2020 to get custody of SJB Revocable Trust's assets. Following the release of the Hulu documentary, Framing Britney Spears, Lynn slammed the media for how they treated her sister and wrote in an Instagram story that she never attended a virtual #FreeBritney rally.
In June last year, Britney approached the court to end her conservatorship and spoke about the abusive relationship with her father in a testimony. Lynn responded to the testimony by saying she was proud of her sister, but the response created problems since death threats were issued against her.
Lynn decided to stay away from her sister’s conservatorship, and in July 2021, she shared a picture of a box of stuffed toys sent by Britney for her kids. Britney then wrote in a social media post that the people closest to her never supported her, although she did not mention her family members directly.
In an Instagram post, Britney Spears also stated that she does not appreciate anyone dancing to the remixes of her song, including her sister, who did the same at the Radio Disney Music Awards in 2017.
Following the release of her memoir, Jamie Lynn announced that the profits shall be donated to This Is My Brave, an organization aiming to normalize the topic of mental illness. The decision was slammed by Britney’s fans, who said that the organization was supporting Britney’s conservatorship.
Britney Spears slams her family members on social media
Britney’s conservatorship ended in November 2021, after which she criticized her family for not speaking against it all these years. Although Spears continued to speak out against her family, Lynn clarified on Good Morning America that she was not at all associated with the conservatorship.
Spears responded to Lynn’s interview by stating that she was unhappy with Jamie’s performance at the Radio Disney Music Awards and that she never locked Lynn in a room with a knife, as the latter had claimed during the interview.
Britney posted a tweet in January this year where she said that although she does not hate Jamie, she was doubtful about her loyalty and support.
Jamie wrote in an Instagram story that she always tried to sort out her problems privately with Britney, but the latter always chose to address things on social media platforms.
While promoting her memoir, Jamie claimed that her sister was heartbroken following her split from Justin Timberlake, but Britney said in an Instagram post that Jamie never cared about it.
Britney Spears’ attorney later sent a letter to Jamie and told her not to speak about Spears in a derogatory manner.
